Last challenge! I think I might have withdrawals next week when I have nothing new to try! Anyway, for this challenge I wanted to use seaweed powder…I still plan to make a batch using it, but it didn’t happen for this challenge. I just ran out of time to get to it by the time it arrive (Thursday later afternoon) here.
What I did do was another sort of landscape soap. I know I’m slightly obsessed. Actually this one I saw someone else had created a beach scape and I loved it. It was gorgeous! I’ve had this fragrance Pineapple-Cilantro for a couple weeks that I’ve wanted to use in a soap but couldn’t come up with a design for the loaf. When I saw the beach it just screamed perfect fit. Oh man the soap smells AMAZING and looks pretty cool too.
Okay, on to the natural ingredients. I used tussah silk in the batch. Can’t wait to see how this changed the properties of the bar! And then I experimented with Apricot kernel powder and strawberry seeds to make the sandy beach. I have to say I was really pleased with the effect. Wasn’t sure how it would come out but it looks like sand to me!
So, now I have a silky bar that part of it will also act as an exfoliant. I’m cool with that :)
